The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has called on the Sudanese government to continue treating South Sudanese as their citizens.

Last week, the Sudanese Council of Ministers chaired by President Omar al-Bashir, threatened to treat South Sudanese as foreigners when they are accessing health and education service.

This is a new position against the earlier promise to treat South Sudanese as Sudanese nationals.

The official spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Amb Mawien Makol, told Eye Radio that Sudanese in Juba would continue to be treated equally with South Sudanese.

“We are advising Sudan to do the same for the benefit of the two nations. Sudanese are here in Juba and they are in the second home,” Amb Makol said.

Humanitarian agencies, including the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, say almost 2,000 fled to Khor Omer Camp in the Darfur region less than two weeks ago.
